I can't read the books I thought I would be able to read here. The text is too small. And when I make the text big enough for me to read, I have to keep scrolling down just to read one blinkin' page! This is so frustrating that I will probably never return to your site. Millions of books, that's great, but too difficult to read any of them.

I can't believe you don't know how difficult you have made it for people to read the books on your site.

Using this text as an example:
https://archive.org/details/novelslettersofj04aust
v. 3-4. Pride and prejudice
The novels and letters of Jane Austen
by Austen, Jane, 1775-1817

try using the Full text option
https://archive.org/stream/novelslettersofj04aust/novelslettersofj04aust_djvu.txt

and adjust the size on your computer monitor. You can also download this text to your computer and open with Microsoft Notepad or Wordpad programs, or similar programs from Apple, Linux, etc. Change the font as large as you need.

Internet Archive books also have a voice option. Click on the headset icon, pick a voice accent that suits you (see images if they upload) and enjoy the book.
